I have never been one for song by song set list reviews. This will be no different. I LOVE the new songs (Krissie I think you and Nate should pick this album up on June 2 and come back to the good side of DMB;)). But here is the set list in case you were wondering.

Dreaming Tree*
You Might Die Trying*
Why I Am*
Rhyme And Reason*
Funny The Way It Is*
Ants Marching*
So Damn Lucky*
Corn Bread*
Grey Street*
Jimi Thing*
Anyone Seen The Bridge*
Too Much (Tease)*
Tripping Billies*

Show Notes:
*Jeff Coffin
+Dave, Carter, Rashawn and Tim

Highlights for me were early show Dreaming Tree, You Might Die Trying (To change the world start with one step...), Why I am (new song), Funny the Way It Is (new song and current radio single). Basically the whole show was amazing. I went in with ZERO expectations. I wasn't even really hoping to hear Two Step like I do at most shows. I didn't hear it and I wasn't disappointed at all. What?!? Who is this person? My seats were great and I am really looking forward to the show on Friday.

Here are a few pics I was able to take at the show:




Funny The Way It Was

I headed to work this morning thinking that I have a great life. And I really do. I have amazing family and friends, a job, and the ability to travel and see a good deal of live music. Despite the occasional pity party of one, I know that I am pretty blessed.

I think I fell in love all over again last night. The show was great! More details later!

Trying to get back into the swing of things

I am trying to get back into the swing of things, but this week has been hard. There has just been a lot going on and I am trying to make sense of it all. Nothing horrible or anything like that, just a lot of stuff to think about. And of course weight loss/body image is always on the mind. I wish it wasn't. I wish I was completely comfortable in my skin and wonder if that day will ever come. Sometimes I feel like I want to be in a relationship SO badly, but then I think about if I am not 100% happy with myself how could anyone else be happy with me?

So I am leaving work early and heading to Alabama to see the Dave Matthews Band. I hope the drive is worth it. I have to be nearing 80 shows soon. Ugh. That is entirely way too many.

Have a great week everyone!
